How many affiliate programs have you stopped working with in the past year?
The affiliate program marketplace changes over time. Some affiliate programs change their terms and conditions. Some affiliate programs merge with other programs. And some affiliate programs go out of business. With the recent focus here and elsewhere on changes in the affiliate program marketplace, I think it makes sense to ask to what extent affiliates have changed the programs they work with. Please share the reasons behind the changes you have made as well. View poll
